'90s-Style "R-Type" Anime Fan Film Makes Its Long-Awaited Debut

Animated action consists of about 17 drawings per second

You may recall the anime-inspired TIE Fighter short film that Otaking77077, AKA Paul Johnson, posted after four long years of work. Lately he's been putting a similarly colossal amount of effort into a short animated tribute to Irem's classic arcade shooter R-Type, and the results are here via the Mashed YouTube channel.


Check out the homage to R-Type and '90s anime, which consists of about 17 drawings per second, below.
